Eleanor Roosevelt had a view of American History that few can rival. In this original, interactive production, Eleanor shares her amazing journey: from her sheltered childhood at the turn of the century, to her volunteer work, on to her support of women’s suffrage, her life as a First Lady through depression and war, and then beyond that, to her active role in the blossoming civil rights movement and her work at the United Nations, where she was figural in the creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Eleanor Roosevelt wasn’t just a First Lady; she was First Lady of the World. First Lady introduces audiences to some of the most influential women of the 20th century. Historical music and audience interaction bring students closer to the people and events that helped transform the role of women in the United States. First Lady is available in March and is an ideal way to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Kronzek, Allan The Art of Fooling History,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Theater
Everyone loves magic, but few know its amazing history, or how past societies regarded the art. In this lively and informative presentation, magician and bestselling author Allan Zola Kronzek combines live performance, audience participation, paintings, photographs, and theatrical posters to bring to life The Art of Fooling throughout the ages. Audiences will learn why medieval performers were sometimes feared as sorcerers, why a treatise on witch persecution was also the first book to explain magic tricks, and how the scientific revolution changed people's perception of magic--and the world. The Art of Fooling is more than a magic. It brings together the elements of history, science, theater and art in a presentation that is as educational as it is entertaining. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-aclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.
